 WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) - Purdue and Notre Dame are both looking for answers.
They want more consistency out of their quarterbacks. They want to finish drives with touchdowns, not field goals. And, of course, they're both trying to creep over the .500 mark after starting 1-1.
But as the Boilermakers try to show a prime-time audience that they can compete with America's top teams, No. 21 Notre Dame has a different goal on Saturday. It's simply trying to meet or exceed coach Brian Kelly's high standards.
First-year Purdue coach Darrell Hazell is making the same point in West Lafayette, and he knows it will take a much better effort to beat the Fighting Irish than it did to hold off Indiana State last weekend.
